Boomkat Product Review:
For anyone who knows these records already - you won't need much of a sermon from us about their greatness. If you don't know them - you're in for a treat.
Rhythm & Sound was the project that Mark Ernestus and Moritz von Oswald turned to after their series of recordings as Basic Channel came to an end. From 1997 until 2002 the label released seven 12" EP's which pretty much defined the direction so much electronic music would turn to in its wake - and it still continues to exert a colossal influence, for better or worse.
It's perhaps hard to remember - over 20 years later - just how little these productions sounded like anything that preceded them, essentially turning dub to vapour like some sort of steppers' alchemy. We could spend an hour listing all the music that basically came along and copied the template in the intervening years but, the thing is, none of what followed comes close.
